As a pro-active voice for dance, photography, and the arts at large, Steven Caras’ observations provide a depth and authenticity only a true insider can impart.  His motivational presentations continue to bring him to a varied range of destinations, some of which include The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts in New York City, The Marin Center in San Rafael, California, Florida Atlantic University in Jupiter, Florida, Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, The Cosmopolitan, Union, Core, and University Clubs in Manhattan, Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida, the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, The Maravel Arts Center in New York City, and on public television stations across the nation.

For over twenty years, Caras has also been a leading lecturer and interview moderator at The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach where his subjects are diverse — from Broadway shows and their performers to dance companies and their artists, to a myriad of inspirational individuals from around the world.


 “As an interviewer and a lecturer – he is quite fabulous.” Iris Barrel Apfel, Businesswoman, Interior Designer, Fashion Icon

“When you first meet Steven Caras, a rather remarkable visual aroma seems to dance around his presence.”   Bruce Helander, Artist/Author
